http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EPsuOEH1fY covers the Flood and why unicorns only persist in myths and fantasy. The unicorns all drowned because they hid from getting herded in. Do you tropers think it would fit in?

There is also a Charles Addams cartoon somewhere of two unicorns standing on a hilltop in the rain, while in the distance Noah's Ark sails toward the horizon.

"A Mythical Motif representing purity, rarity and wild beauty..."

Rarity. I get it.

Is there a reason this isn't called either "Our unicorns are purer" or "Our unicorns are hornier?"

Because we don't have to reuse the same joke over and over again when it isn't applicable.

Well, it is an Our Monsters Are Different page. And actually, "Our Unicorns Are Purer" would be applicable. (As much so as "Our Elves Are Better" or "Our Ogres Are Hungrier," at any rate.)

Well the thing about that index is that it started for all of that format and then, because we didn't have a monsters list, became the monsters list.

Besides, this started off as a Mythical Motif and has examples for the sake of the motif only so let's just name it like a motif. It's more about the motif than about the monsters.

I moved Unicorns to Unicorn. I also made a change with the description. The old description was a lot more technical with what they looked like. That can be done with pictures. I wanted to focus more on how they existed as a motif and how the motif has changed over the years. I did this whole other right up but then tried to combine them. My version is on a YKTTW archive. I've saved a copy of the Unicorns version below.

Old archived discussion from "Unicorns"

Working Title: Unicorns:

Filby: I am disappointed that the title of this page is not "Our Unicorns Are Hornier".

Red Wren: ...Darn you.

You're meant to comment down here.

Y'know, they did a loose survey of creature pages and found that the "our blank is blankier" ended up better described.

I do wish it was "Our Unicorns Are Hornier" now.
